Aspiring Women Leaders Workshop

Tuesday 3 December 2019, University of Liverpool in London

This workshop will help inspire women by giving them the confidence and useful practical techniques to progress their career ambitions in business schools.

In addition to case studies from successful women role models in business schools talking about the hurdles they have faced and how they have overcome them, the programme will feature sessions providing guidance on developing networks, information from leading head-hunters and advice on career planning. Participants will also work together to develop strategies for tackling some of the challenges they might encounter in more senior business school roles.

Delegates at this event will:

  • Examine the stories of women in leadership positions on the challenges they have encountered and continue to face in progressing their careers;
  • Explore with other aspiring women colleagues how they would deal with some of the problems they could face as leaders in business schools;
  • Learn about the benefits of career planning, balanced with taking a flexible approach as opportunities arise;
  • Discuss how to develop valuable and supportive professional networks, including with fellow workshop participants.
